I don’t know about you, but I’m already ready for this winter to be over and done with. I’m ready to head to the park in jeans and a short sleeve shirt. I’m ready for flip-flops. I’m ready to get my sweat on outside instead of inside of a smelly gym while my children are supervised by a (I’m sure very underpaid) childcare worker who reallllly looks like she doesn’t want to be there. I mean, c’mon — she gets to play with my darling children and I’m the one busting a sweat on the elliptical. What’s her problem?

Who wouldn’t want to spend their day with those two?! Moving on — I’m going to pretend warmer weather is already here and sip on a cool and refreshing smoothie.

It’s so packed full of crisp and bright flavors, thanks mainly to raspberry and mango. But really the key here is fresh ginger. The ginger really livens things up and makes it super refreshing and energizing. I, of course, snuck in a little spinach, but you could also use kale. And then to thin this out and make this smoothie material, I used coconut water. I was going for really light and cool, but if you’re not a fan of coconut water you could easily just use plain water or even your favorite kind of milk. I was aiming for more of the snack type beverage rather than a meal-replacement smoothie.

And let me tell you, this was a hit with the whole family. I don’t know if it was the cute straws or the miniature mason jars, but E, N, and Ben all loved this smoothie. Oh yeah — so did I! Ben was a little iffy on the ginger (it’s not his favorite) but he still drank it without any issues. Kids loved it too! Always nice with little man N eats something, he is unfortunately Mr. Picky Pants.

  1. Those jars are too cute! I’m a fan of anything raspberry so I’ll definitely be trying these. I’m bad about getting stuck in the same rut with smoothies, I need to branch out a bit!

  2. Winter never hit here – I’ve been drinking smoothies all season so now I’m ready for the snow! That said, this smoothie sounds fantastic right about now. Love the flavor pairing. And speaking of pairs – those two ARE adorable!

  3. I think I’d swap out the banana and use greek yogurt–not a banana person

  4. this sounds like the perfect smoothie – added greens are always a bonus for us moms with picky eaters, and I LOVE the jars and straws

  9. If I can’t be on a warm beach, and can at least eat tropical flavors! Yum!

  10. I’m so ready for short-sleeve weather, too! Those mason jars are so cute! And I love that you added a pop of fresh ginger to these smoothies. I’ve got to try that!

  11. This is exactly whatI need to survive February!

  12. I am so ready for summer too!! AND ready to be outside rather than in a smelly gym… I can almost taste the freshness of this smoothie…
